"A Straight Line" as written by and Andy/hutchence Gill....
Yeah we're just watching history
Now that the dogs are barking
Take a picture for your children
Make it real in FujiColor
Life in the junkyard's hard
Even when the dogs are sleeping
But if you win you lose the next spin
Madame, monsieur's, rien ne va plus

I watch the black and white bleeding
Don't you know the pain I'm in
I've been working all week
I've been thinking on my feet
And I've come to the end of my losing streak

Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line

Wave goodbye to your innocence
Sell it to the highest bidder
In a tight spot call for assistance
Is that American Express?
Get me out of here

I watch the black and white bleeding
Don't you know the pain I'm in
I've been working all week
I've been thinking on my feet
And I've come to the end of my losing streak

Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line

I'm up the top, looking down
Everybody looks just like ants
It would be so easy

    General Comment"I'm coming to the end of my losing streak." Hmmmm...

    This song is really fun! It's probably about being fed up of something and trying to get it to stop, though, which is not a fun topic.

    "Wave goodbye to your innocence, sell it to the highet bidder..." My favorite line. This whole album brought aout a loss of my innocence...

    General CommentThis song is about Michael's problems with the tabloids and paparazzi (dogs). Black and white bleeding particularly referring to newspaper text. Take a straight line being a reference to the papers not telling a true story in regards Hutchence/Yates. I once also thought coming to the end of my losing streak/straight line was a reference to cocaine but more likely refers to his eventual suicide.
